‘What’s the Deal?’… With AFI Fest? ‘Selma,’ American Sniper,’ ‘Inherent Vice’ (Video)

AFI Fest may have wrapped up last week but it left its mark on awards season this year thanks to world premieres of films such films as “Selma,” “American Sniper,” “The Gambler” and “A Most Violent Year”

Last week’s episode of “What’s the Deal?” covered “A Most Violent Year,” and this week’s episode picks up where TheWrap’s film reporter Jeff Sneider left off at AFI Fest.

This week’s video features Sneider’s thoughts on Paul Thomas Anderson‘s “Inherent Vice” and why “American Sniper” and “The Gambler” came up short despite some strong performances.

“Selma,” on the other hand, is a sure-fire awards contender according to Sneider, so watch the video for his take on this quartet of prestige pictures.
